Bentley Motors and The Macallan have announced a partnership to help both companies achieve carbon-neutrality.

The two luxury brands will work alongside one another to ensure each of their sustainable goals are met.

The Macallan has committed to becoming carbon-neutral by 2030 and to having an entirely electric passenger vehicle fleet on its estate by 2025. Through the partnership, Bentley will provide two of its hybrid models this year to start off with, followed by fully electric vehicles (EVs) in the coming years.

Bentley has pledged to electrify its entire range by 2023, produce its first battery-electric car by 2025 and solely produce EVs by 2030. It also claims its headquarters in Crewe is the ‘first carbon-neutral factory for luxury car manufacture in the world’.

The companies will work together to locate the most sustainable materials and suppliers.

Bentley Chairman Adrian Hallmark said: “Transforming Bentley into the world’s most sustainable luxury car company is an exciting journey and I’m delighted to be working with The Macallan with one common goal; to both lead our fields as we work towards a more sustainable future.

“We will learn from each other in the coming months and years to advance our programmes together, and on the way work on some truly extraordinary projects and products.”
